street. washington and wall street are not exactly the best of friends these days. president obama is asking for a tack on the nation's 50 largest financial instewings to pay back the bailout of wall street. the proposed tax on banks, thrifts and insurance giant would start after june 30th and would raise an estimated $90 billion over ten years. that came after bank ceos faced tough questions on executive pay and the failure of regulation before a bipartisan commission in washington. that commission looking into the causes of the financial crisis. the market shrugged off the noise from washington, closing at a 15-month high on thursday, but on friday, the markets fell. we are just heading into earnings season with dow components intel and j.p. morgan chase, beating analyst expectations this week while alcoa missed. and it's a battle of the titans with google taking on china. the search engine threatening to pull out of the biggest market in the world because of internet censorship. so can there be any winners in the fight between washington and wall street? is it a populist agenda or
